that longer than usual drive time is contributed to the accident we were showing you this pictures of. 52 minutes 128 south peabody to the weston tolls. fox25 storm tracker meteorologist shiri spear joining us now, happy first meeting logical day of winter. we got 90 more days ahead of us. >> we do. we have a long stretch to go but technically the coldest time of the year in boston. so we got december, january, february, that would make up meteorological ernest wallace, it is here and i got a couple icy spots out west and western massachusetts and right now a little bit of glaze that has developed with drizzle falling on a frozen ground. we got steady rain that develops locally in time for the even commute and on and off rain that goes strong all day long tomorrow and here is where the rain is coming from. this is the light rain this morning. this is our steady rain this evening. and this is rain that we are going to tap into as we get into the day tomorrow. so we got waves of it here.
7:46 am
but showers out there. for the time being right now it is just increasing clouds that we have. worcester at 29 and this in particular one of the spots i will watch for the potential of a little bit of icing. at this point i think we are in good shape. we have mostly cloudy skies, not sure why we are getting bright sunshine there but mostly cloudy skies that continue through the morning and it would only be a rogue shower in central massachusetts and sprinkle impacting one or two towns, likely avoiding worcester here but see by 9:00 a.m. we are still freezing at 32 , upper 30s back by 11:00 this morning and highs really stuck mostly in the upper 30s to lower 40s later today. 21 in norwood now, 23 in lawrence, a little bit brighter 23 but in come the clouds through the morning and know looking quiet 10:00 a.m., at noon time today and step up and say hey, we have the chance for a couple of sprinkles both lunch time and eastern massachusetts,
7:47 am
we get into the afternoon though and get spotty shower through the afternoon and here you can see the heavier steadier rain at 4:00 p.m. through 7:00 p.m. developing and focused over southeastern massachusetts. now, the focus of that heavy rain is a little debate we will have to watch it as we get into the afternoon and definitely heaviest coming into the town during the evening, 45 in boston today, 45 in norwood, 44 in lawrence and lower 40s worcester up through fitchburg and 39 in keene, new hampshire, so at left the threat for any icy spots is going to melt away into the afternoon and it is not going to exist tomorrow because into the upper 40s, lower 50s but the on and off ranges doesn't want to let go. see 7:00 tomorrow morning. decent shape getting into work and by lunchtime got spot showers and just like today we are going to see the heaviest, steadiest rain actually come in during the evening and overnight hours finally wrapping up here on thursday with a couple end.
